Final comments
Bear in mind that London is a very expensive city, and it can be very difficult to find accommodation.Maybe you are not going to make many British friends, but be sure that you'll find loads of great people among the international students!At least, that's my experience.

Housing
Type of housing: Hall of Residence
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Hall of Residence
Why?
Although the services could have been better, I had the privacy of a single room and, at the same time, I could be with other young people.
